The fellowshipp of the Gbb

Hi my friends! I made this thread for every one of us, and new users of this web who needs advice and recomendations of our gbb pistol care, like what you never do with you'r guns, magazines, to be carefull with it ( some treat an airsoft gun like it was a real steel one)

I will start with: do not dissasembly you'r gun so often more than the nescesary, you may get broke some internals(screws, pins, plastic parts)

Don't try you'r self to upgrade you'r gun if you dont have the knowledge to do it.

Don't dry fire you'r gun! You will damage the internals(trigger assembly and maybe some others parts)

Only use good brands of bb's, i use BSL
If you like green gas, do not use in you'r gbb the HK green gas!, it has a lot of silicone oil %

Treat you'r airsoft replica like what it is: a replica! Is not made for a real WAR! I saw some guys in you tube treating their guns and rifles so bad, like pulling the sniper bolt like crazy, in the floor the gas magazines and stuff like that


That's are some of my own experience, please you'r knowledge will be appreciate!, and if you have a link of an older post you'r welcome to share that to

Why is it bad to dry fire a gbb? As long as you maintain it properly, I donít see how a dry fire would have any extra effect? Itís not like the bb provides much, if any resistance in the system. It would cause the same wear to dry fire as it would to fire a bb.

I dry fire practice with my Hi-Capa all the time, itís one of my favorite thing to do with it. Will I need to replace parts down the road? Yes, but is just the nature of the beast. Airsoft is not real steel, replacing parts is easy and *relatively cheep.

It is bad because you are making unnecessary wear on your pistol, and you would have to buy spare parts more often, and that would take you to be disarming the gun more times than appropriate, so in the end certain parts are damaged like worn screws and thing like that like I said before

I have never understood people claiming dry firing is bad since it causes wear. Then by that thinking, you shouldnít fire the gun at all, it causes wear...

Like I said earlier, you need to replace parts no matter what, so you might as well just use it, practice, and get better.

Edit: In my experience itís better to use & abuse the gun and get better by practicing, then to leave it sitting in a case, safely tucked under your bed. You can always replace parts, just my two cents

Agreed. Some of them arenít that pricey, when it breaks just buy a new one... else maintain it.
One tip, not sure about it, but my opinion, donít press on hammer to let out all gas after a game (obviously mag in). Sudden temperature changes may have bad effect on gummy/plastic parts. So empty mag when out of the gun.

How do you know your green gas can is empty? Mine noticeably gets less shots after a refill now, but can seems heavy and thereís still liquid inside.

Anyone else approves that dry firing is a good thing? tell your experiences of what is good and what is bad for your gbb

Dry-fire causes exactly the same wear as actually shooting bbs. It takes a long, long time to get something to wear down on most guns. I maintain the pistols for a rental field, and those thing go through a couple years of thousand rounds per day, every single day, before failing at all.

Exactly, thank you Dimitri. In my experience most gbbs can take a lot of abuse before breaking down.

Airsoft is not like RS, you canít really damage a ďfiring pinĒ since most gbbs use pretty beefy valve knockers so itís really a nonissue.

Edit: I just realized this thread is in the completely wrong spot, maybe an admin can move it?

Yes! You'r right! I didn't see right when i posted xd.

Well, every one thinks dry fire is safe, I'm not so sure.

any other personal experience? Or just maybe this post is so silly?

Hi, I also noticed that you have to shake the green gas well from the first to the last use, why? So you will have a better performance of gas and silicone, because before you empty the bottle you will have more silicone accumulation and you will not have as many shots as with a brand new bottle of green gas

Dont use green gas, it will just put excess silicon in your hop group. I run dry propane and just maintain the pistol with high quality lube when I break it down. High quality lube = superlube

Well i use green gas cuz i'm afraid of broken some internas or like happend to me with my desert eagle, the locking part of the outer barrel it broke *and other parts too* using only green gas, imagine if i use propane!!, But anyways i repare the outer barrel and now is working,.. But I think it broke becouse two things: the outer barrel it moved a bit back and forward, and theouter barrel is too thing, so the blowback is very stronger and it's just broke...
I contact to AST and i explain the problem to them, what if you made a steel barrel, and they were agree to make it

But...green gas and propane are the exact same thing. Green gas is just purified and has a silicone additive.

They're the same thing. The green gas just has additives to prevent corrosion of the rubber parts in the magazine and gun.

This is why you can now buy propane adapters that have a reservoir for silicone oil. This effectively makes propane just as safe for your gun and much cheaper to use (for most people) than green gas.

There should be no significant power difference between the two and any that you see would simply be due to variation between temperature, how the mag was filled, etc.
